Following his hits Helvetica (about the ubiquitous font) and Objectified (a survey of product design), Urbanized is the final doc in Gary Hustwit's "design trilogy."

Featuring some of the world's foremost architects, planners, and policymakers—including Rem Koolhaas, Oscar Niemeyer, and Amanda Burden—Urbanized examines the issues and strategies behind urban design. Hustwit follows a diverse range of design projects around the world, providing a compelling framework for a global discussion about the future of our cities. (80 mins., video)

Cosponsored by Ohio State’s Department of Design and Knowlton School of Architecture.
